It goes without saying that we’re big fans of decorating and design help through the magic of the internet. So of course we’re psyched that one of you is gonna score some customized assistance from My Design Guide. They tap into a network of real interior designers to help you out with everything from quick fix mini-consults (which come free just by completing their StyleFinder quiz) to full blown 3-D renderings with paint color picks, furniture selections, and a shopping list (see a sample here). The latter of which our winner will be cashing in on this week. Woot.

I definitely need help in the kitchen when it comes to cooking. It is a must for me to use a recipe! And my GPS has come in handy as well. We moved to a new state about a yr ago and I rarely get out of my local area. If I do then I have to have the GPS on.

Chowhound for food when I travel! I spend weeks obsessively planning every detail of what I’ll eat when I go away…all 3 meals…plus snacks..and desserts…when I decide on a trip, I start working on a list…it’s usually around 60 restaurants for a 9 day trip…and then I have to work and re check and consult and do polls and surveys to narrow down the list..Don’t know what I would do without Chowhound…
I love to cook, but definitely need a recipe to help me out.
Meg B. says
GUIDE ME! If it’s guidance I can find on my own using the Google Machine/books/maps/etc I’ll use it readily for anything (even if I already know what I’m doing!). If I have to actually vocally ask someone then I’d rather stumble around blind until I either figure it out or decide I don’t want/need/etc it anymore :)
GUIDE ME! I make it a policy to always call on wiser people I know in any situation.
GUIDE ME! I need help with everything, and have paid everyone from an interior designer to a professional organizer to a garden consultant…and am still lost!

I typically do pretty well on my own when it comes to cooking but I’m too much of a “follow the rules” kinda girl that I follow recipes down to the last word.
Guide me! I always need Google Maps if I’m anywhere other than in my home town.
i always think i learn best when i can follow a step-by-step at least once through… so recipes, tutorials for stuff around the house, etc. – basically anything!
Being a curious person, I seek guidance on a lot of things…decorating, travel, parenting, etc. I’m a librarian so I’m also frequently asked by others for guidance. I love helping people find information they need:)
GUIDE ME! I get help (cooking, interiors, gardening) from browsing browsing browsing online and by walking into brick and mortar shops to see and absorb and reconfigure and experiment in my head before coming up with what I want to try next. Love your site :)
Guide me! We have a brand new home without anything in it. I’ll be going to the internet but definitely will need some more help!

My living room has been completely empty for a year because I do not know how to begin to decorate it. I need help!
I look at you guys website for lots of ideas and tutorials on how to do home projects. I look forward to looking daily for inspiration.
GUIDE ME! I definitely need help with my new home! I find the floor plan very challenging — we have lots of closets, which is great, but all of the doors make for challenging furniture placement!
Karen Potter says
Use help whenever I can get it
Ravelle D says
I’m still calling my mom for almost everything, lol
I always need someone to GUIDE ME when I’m doing anything technical, like picking out a new laptop or figuring out the wireless internet. I’m so happy this giveaway is open to readers outside the US! Yay!
I’d be lost in a new HUGE city without my iPhone!!!!! it is my everything guide!
I use my phone’s GPS to find places in my own city! The voice for turn-by-turn direction is female, so we call her Darla. We say “Thank you Darla” when we reach our destination safely.
GUIDE ME! I am a school teacher and during the summer I love to add little touches made by me to my home. I need help with color selection in the living room. Curtains, Wall Color, Furniture, etc. I tend to be very crafty and love to do projects on my own, but I need help this time. I usually just go online and or look through Better Homes magazines to find the style I am looking for. I LOVE the shabby chic look with a modern twist. Help me please!

I have to process pretty much any decision verbally with friends/family. Decisions are hard!

Anything involving math and measurement is where I need tons o help.
Rachel Bowman says
Guide Me….I get my decorating guidance from YHL! and my cooking guidance from the pioneer woman
Guide Me! I never like to feel like I am reinventing the wheel. If there is an expert out there on something I’m interested in, I will be their biggest fan. I love the idea of learning how others do things and then adapting the idea with my own creative spin!
What a cool service! I need guidance mostly when driving. I’m perpetually lost. I have to use our GPS all the time! Also, Google is my best friend!
